2:00pm
a fight, when he ticked off presidents of both parties, not fair, not right. not here. >> dana: hello, everyone. i'm dana perino with andrea tantaros, bob beckel, eric bolling, greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> dana: benghazi hearings finally got underway on capitol hill today. the purpose to find out what the white house and others in the administration knew about the attack, why the video was blamed and why repeated requests for more security were seemingly ignored. former c.i.a. director david petraeus will testify tomorrow in two closed door hearings. it was announced today that secretary of state hillary clinton will testify in mid-december. chairman of the house foreign affairs committee spoke today about the frustration over the conflicting information. >> every time we have another
2:01pm
classified briefing and every time we try to pry deeper we get conflicting reports about what was taking place. and what messages were being sent to washington. what did the administration know, and we have got to do something to make sure that our personnel in harm's way including diplomat, they are on the front line, that the diplomatic posts are protected and that they have the security that they need. >> dana: all right. so a lot to get to tonight, because there are more reports tonight from the "wall street journal" that updated the story earlier, eric, that said general david petraeus in the final days before he was leaving that there is a lot of conflict and it was over the benghazi issue because he wanted to put out a c.i.a. timeline to put the c.i.a. in a favorable light. his boss, jim clapper, director of national intelligence, there was conflict there. we know what happened which is revealed that david petraeus, he admitted he had an exmarital affair. he resigned from the c.i.a.
2:02pm
but he is going to testify anyway. that is new. >> eric: he is going to testify. but catherine herridge reported a short time ago that clapper and michael morrell the acting c.i.a. director would about tell them, wouldn't tell anyone who instructed susan rice to go with the video story. the way it went down, she was told to go out there to talk to five talk shows and there were talking points. who prepared the talking points and told them to go with the talking point? neither one of them would come clean on. >> dana: they have plausible deniability. they said we don't know who did it. that feels convenient. >> bob: president said the white house asked her to do it. >> dana: who prepared the information, that is the question. >> bob: the question is who
2:03pm
gave her the talking points? and we know talking points she was given to her mind, given the same intelligence committees of the hill, >> dana: they could not talk about the role of ansar al-sharia when there is strong evidence of the involvement. if the chairwoman was getting advice about the question to ask, the question you have been asking since september 11. >> greg: incredible. do you think hillary got herself far enough away from this thing? she is in australia. feed her wine and we might get more facts from her slightly tipsy than anybody else. my fear about this thing is that after confusing event like this, if you don't get the true facts, you almost never do. we are still talking about the
2:04pm
j.f.k. assassination because of the warren commission. if we don't get clarity, we will get the history and truth from a half-baked hbo tv show. in which susan rice is the hero played by halle berry and it will make no sense. >> dana: what must it be like to be david petraeus tonight know leg has gone from a major hero in history. it doesn't take away from his accomplishments what he achieved and what happened with the extra marital affair. he goes to congress as a civilian, first time he has done that. he will tell them what he knows and i'm sure he will be truthful about it. what is that going to be like? it's closed door so we won't see him. >> andrea: he's a very how longest man -- honest man and so some are speculating that white house didn't want him to testify because he is a good man. the question remains, besides who pushed the video, why did
2:05pm
general petraeus change his story? reports from the c.i.a. officer on the ground after the attack said it was a terrorist attack. when general petraeus briefed congress, he also mentioned the video story. why were they saying it was terrorism? why he didn't say that? the man who testified in his place today got up hill and said i wasn't at the briefing, i don't know. i don't know who prepared the talking points. >> eric: even more disturbing that general petraeus on the very same day said he pushed the video. he said it was the video. first, can we make a point. we made it yesterday. again, the u.s. military is the most respected on the planet. it's one of the most well run organizations of any type on the planet. we're not -- talking about a few, what could be perceived as bad apples. allow me. petraeus said it was the video and they look at the video as a spontaneous, the benghazi
2:06pm
killings as a spontaneous reaction. the department of defense leon panetta was saying it was terrorism. the very same -- >> bob: petraeus never said -- he didn't change his story. he never said it wasn't a terrorist attack. he did not. >> eric: said it was reaction to the movie. >> dana: this would be a fun experiment. if you found somebody living under a rock or on mars or listening to the news and said i want you to sift through the stories, see the conclusion. it's what is our government doing to protect the diplomatic personnel. we have a responseability to
2:07pm
do that. >> greg: a journalist would be good at doing that. this is a blown opportunity for journalist to become the next -- >> bob: four days after it took place. >> dana: they are the ones who said -- what they should have done and they didn't is they created the problem. not us. >> bob: talk about the conflicting information. it says in here on the briefing, there was strong ties to al-qaeda. not been one shred of evidence. >> dana: there is. >> bob: no, by the name al-qaeda. >> eric: president obama said i said it was terrorism on september 19. he said it was terrorism. >> bob: what is the point? i said it was terrorism on the 11th. >> eric: the state
2:08pm
department -- [over talk ] >> andrea: he did say it was terrorism why would cbs steve croft ask him why he didn't say it was terrorism on the first day. why tell the ladies of "the view" it's too soon to tell and univision it's not. jay carney said we never said it was terrorism. they did not say it was terrorism. yesterday at the press conference the president stood at the podium and said now that the eselection over we can get some answers. >> bob: they were prejudging it before the election to make political he hay out of it. >> dana: senator dianne feinstein of california, chairwoman of the intelligence committee wants to know why they weren't informed in a closed door session.
2:09pm
about the investigation of f.b.i. in petraeus' personal life. >> greg: dianne feinstein, a right wing republican, right, bob? no no, no. she is a democrat. let me finish my point where you interrupted me when i said where the journalists. where are the journalbe lists? why isn't there a woodward or 2009 out of this? this is a big story. >> bob: it took them two years to get their facts out. you're asking this to be done -- >> dana: then the administration should have said we'll get the information as it comes along. the quote from the press secretary there is nothing to see here, guys. please stop asking the pesky questions. >> eric: do you remember what is happening as this happened? week before september 11 we
2:10pm
reported that president obama did not show up to intel meetings. he wasn't attending the intel briefings. this happens the next day. four americans dead the next day. the reason we are getting conflicting stories now they have to hide that he did something -- >> bob: wherever the president of the united states goes, eric, wherever he goes or he is he gets the intelligence briefings. you don't have to be in the white house to get an intelligence briefing. every day the president where he is gets -- >> eric: all i'm saying, daa can speak to this, if you are in the room -- wherever, the oval office, if it's in oval office isn't there likely more information brought out? >> dana: it gives you a chance to ask questions. but every president has its own style. >> andrea: a lot of lefties are saying this is a private matter, the affair. they're saying don't pay attention to, which isn't a good thing. if someone landed from space to look at all of this, they
2:11pm
are looking at the american military, one of the highest regarded organizations in the united states. they look at two decorated generals with two anthony weiners, and it's really sad. no one is going this really embarrassing for president obama. instead this is embarrassing for the military. >> bob: i assume in iraq they got phony information about weapons of mass destruction. >> andrea: we don't have enough time -- >> bob: no, they don't have enough time. not enough time before they went to war. >> dana: water finds a way. there were conflicting information on benghazi and we talked about that. greg is going to explain. next. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] wouldn't it be cool if you could combine

♪ ♪ >> greg: responding to the benghazi mess, president obama said susan rice had the best intel available. [ laughter ]
2:16pm
sorry. frayed frayeden. th -- freud freudian.sorry. this is an excuse you get from the kid that brock mommy's vase. only here it was american lives. obama knows, he doesn't know. who knows? certainly not us. mommy ain't buying it and getting impatient. despite the tough i go act at the lectern the affair makes as much sense as left-handed frying pan. obama said he called it terrorism the day after and rice says it wasn't. which leads back to who said blame the video? obama ran with the foreign policy from years of community organizing. in chicago we learn value of phony outrage.
2:17pm
>> let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she made an appearance at the request of the white house where she gave her best understanding of the intelligence provided to her. if senator mccain and graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, bemichelle her reputation -- besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> greg: what is going on here? and rage over criticism of benghazi sparks th spark -- exce rage of benghazi. it's kind of sexist.
2:18pm
the juvenile bravado that scared the npr correspondent. outraged that he is picking on her. he doesn't think she can take care of herself. what he offered the same protection to male ambassador? see benghazi. is his anger legitimate? >> andrea: no. >> greg: no? >> andrea: let me think about that. no. he stood up there and said come after me. easy to say in a room full of reporters that he knows won't come after him. he said he's protecting the susan rice but it's okay to make hillary the human shield to take the fall for benghazi? >> dana: she turned that right around. >> andrea: all roads in this blame game shift back to the c.i.a. in the beginning. yesterday, charles krauthammer suggested that the federal government may have leverageed the affair that petraeus had to influence what he told congress. you have to wonder why even
2:19pm
would point c.i.a. that originally got it right, it was a terrorist attack. why they changed the story about the video. >> bob: if it's a rumor or theory from the right about petraeus why say it? why does krauthammer say it? nothing to base it on. >> greg: you've done that. >> andrea: you do it all the time. >> bob: it's different when i d do it. >> greg: remember paid no taxes? remember that? >> bob: he did pay no taxes. he is exactly right. these people could not tell you two things about susan rice. they pick out one thing that you politicized. >> dana: not true. >> bob: she never once said it wasn't terrorism. read the statement. >> dana: senator mccain has known her for many years a known her work and legitimately raises questions about it, just as senator obama at the time raised questions about president obama's pick for u.n. ambassador john bolton. he vigorously opposed it. senator mccain has every right to do that as well.
2:20pm
i do think it was -- i have been in that position as susan rice, i would have been buoyed by the fact that president obama defended me. loyalty goes both ways. i think they have a problem here. one of the reasons the story keeps at it is they are refusing to recognize that there are legitimate question questions. every day more facts are uncovered to make it look worse for them. >> eric: can i point something out? i don't like hillary clinton's politics or bill clinton's politics. but hillary clinton was a good secretary of state. >> andrea: why? >> eric: she was tough. >> andrea: on what? >> eric: she didn't back down and she had ideas, thought about things and she did it her way. my point, susan rice won't be hillary clinton. susan rice will be a mouthpiece for president obama and not the american people. >> bob: curious, check this out and see if mccain and graham had such problems did they vote for her for-up?
2:21pm
my guess is they probably did. >> greg: the u.n. loves her. the u.n. hated bolton which is why bolton was great. when u.n. loves you, they like someone to roll over. >> eric: they may have voted for her but that was prior to her lying to five different news organizations. >> bob: how can you accuse her of lying? the intelligence committee itself said that it was the same intelligence that the intelligence committee got the day before she testified. >> eric: be specific. >> bob: i will. senior member of the intelligence committee released the following statement. >> eric: you are always talking about who are the sources? who are they? name them. give us names. the "new york times" saying we talk about president obama's? talk about the sources. who are they? >> bob: this is adam -- he got the national intelligence briefing. >> greg: i want to get to -- >> eric: the names aren't in that. no matter how many times you read that paper, you won't find it. >> greg: this like being at a bar with two guys arguing
2:22pm
oaf their team. congressman clyburn had this to say about susan rice. senator? no a congressman. take it away. >> something about susan rice, i have a real, real problem with my senior senator trying to make her a scapegoat in this. i think it's a shame for this young lady whose roots are deep in south carolina soil to get this about my senior senator who i consider a good friend. >> let's talk about the motive here. why the hos silty to a young public servant? >> the young african-american woman i'll say. >> greg: all right. now we have race in the picture. i always think sometimes i'm happy to see the race card because it means it's proof we might get closer to the truth. >> andrea: i think everyone goes uggghh. i don't think the story line
2:23pm
is going anywhere soon. it hurts real instances of racism. if you pull a race card and woman card all the time, it hurt whence there is discrimination. there are reasons to be upset with susan rice. benghazi is that reason. i agree with you, i don't know what hillary clinton did that was so great. i don't know what susan rice did that was so great to have her be promoted to the position if that is direction they're going. they took the middle east out of hillary's portfolio and they watered it down and gave her the congo. i have seen her doing the running man and congo. what has she done? >> bob: a lot of things. >> andrea: her tenure has been a joke. >> bob: a joke? it's not a joke. dana, last word. one word, though. >> dana: can i do two? rick grenel/a name. former u.n. spokesperson who was there eight years. he has a piece that he wrote today about the record of the u.n. over the last four years.
2:24pm
it's to question whether this is a person that is based -- >> bob: it shouldn't based on race card. no one knows anything about this except for speech. give me reasons why he is shouldn't be secretary of state. despite the intelligence she was given. >> greg: we have to move on. dana is like a teacher. gives you homework. read this article. other stuff, gives you a book. coming up, mitt romney says the give-away to young people and minorities are a part of why they won. are you buying that? more importantly, are you buying that? that is the same thing. eric explains it next. don't go away. ♪ ♪ having you ship my gifts couldn't be easier. well, having a ton of locations doesn't hurt.

that. as a result, this became a contest between personalities and chicago loves that. >> eric: here is where i am. i'll throw it out there quickly. i think the republicans need to focus their attention. some people may be too far right and some may be close to the center for you. pick a lane, republicans. get behind someone and win an election. this infighting is no good for me. >> greg: i kind of disagree. this is called a hate fact. it's a fact that people hate. this is how obama won. however, you do have to go after every vote. but you have to play the game they do. that is what the argument is about. even loves santa claus on christmas morning but no one wants the credit card in january. until that bill is due, which will probably come in mandarin the cool guy will win. it was a contest between two personalities. the generous cool guy who doesn't have the bill and the stingy white stiff, that is
